Repurposing Leftovers: Smoked Pulled Lamb Tacos:

During the previous week, we smoked a succulent lamb shoulder and found ourselves with additional pulled lamb. Rather than allowing it to be wasted, we preserved it by sealing it in a vacuum-sealed bag and storing it in the freezer.




Bringing the Lamb Back to Life:

Last night, we removed the frozen pulled lamb from the freezer and allowed it to thaw. To restore its tenderness and enhance its flavour, we gently simmered it in a pot of water until it was fully heated.


Assembly Time: Let the Kids Take Over:

Now, here's where the fun begins! We invited the kids to join us in putting together the smoked pulled lamb tacos, and they were absolutely delighted to take part.




Making the Tacos:

We placed warm tortillas on the table and allowed the kids to use spoons to distribute the pulled lamb onto them. To enhance the flavour, they sprinkled their favourite cheese on top



Finishing Touches:

As the kids completed the taco assembly, a delightful fragrance filled the surroundings. The tacos were arranged on a taco holder and were nearly ready to be enjoyed.



Time to Dig In:

At last, the moment arrived to savour the results of our efforts. The children eagerly seized their tacos and indulged in their first bite. The joy evident on their faces told the story: the blend of smoky lamb, melted cheese, and warm tortillas was an absolute triumph.
